Mass Spectra and NMR Spectra of Gangliosides Containing Fucose
Two gangliosides containing fucose, prepared from minipig posterior root ganglion, were analyzed as methylated, methylated-reduced and methylated-reduced-trimethylsilylated derivatives by mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy and shown to have the following structures:
Fucα1→Hexβ1→3HexNAc (←NeuAc) β1→Hexβ1→Hexβ1→1Ceramide
